Reversing Atherosclerosis: Development of a Biocompatible Solvent
City:Ottawa, ON
School:College catholique Franco-Ouest
Abstract:A novel method of treating atherosclerosis using biocompatible solvents is presented. A theoretical framework is presented within the context of solubility theory. The suitability of several fatty acids as well as terpenoid compounds have been tested in-vitro in both water and blood and are showing promising results. The interaction of select solvents with cholesterol, the phospholipid bilayer of blood cells and lipoproteins is discussed.
